Does the New WRX Really Deserve the Hate?

Thanks to Pronamel for sponsoring a portion of today’s video! You can find Pronamel Mineral Boost anywhere you buy toothpaste OR buy it now right here:

When Subaru unveiled the brand new 2022 WRX, people immediately took to the comments to express how disappointed they were. The new WRX might be the most cutting edge iteration by far, but something is off. Why don’t the Subaru diehards love the new WRX? Is it really the “worst looking” one in history? We’re gonna examine the WRX’s history to find out.

    The wrx is my favorite car ever but now Subaru should just kill it in respect for the beautiful and loved wrx’s that came before it. Same with the brz. Why would you give it the same engine as the assent yet make it so less powerful?

      Make it faster and make it look better. The 2021 wrx looked great but still needed more power. But I can also see that there is no need for more power in really because there is no need. So if they don’t make it more powerful, make it lighter and more rally oriented more.

      Another thing, if they make another wrx forester or any wrx wagon that would be the coolest thing to ever happen to the jersey seen in years.

    I think this is the formula of JDM tunable cars. Have it come out of the factory not very pretty and powerful. So we can use our individual imagination to mod it to our taste.

    The new WRX hate is hilarious. Dont get me wrong, it looks terrible, but the wrx has literally always looked like dogsh*t. Easily the most consistently bad looking sports car thats been in production for decades. The ONLY body that ever looked good was the GH hatch.

    Tbh I kinda like the new one. The taillights bother me a bit but put it on some rally wheels and good tires and it would be awesome imo. But then again I believe any car can be a rally car, especially one that has rally car heritage. I think the cladding allows for a bit of room to have aftermarket companies make flares and things that attach at factory points while many cars have the fender as a solid piece allowing for no points to mount on.

    I think the 2.5rs is the best looking Subaru to date. I don't understand the selling point of the Crosstrek. I purchased a 2021 Forester. All new Subaru models have great looking front ends. The 2021 Subaru Forester rear end is FUGLY. I bought it because of it's price, inside room, ground clearance, and great AWD system.

    Honestly subaru is in a very very weird spot right now that can go either really well for them or really poorly. Their whole brand is built around the symmetrical AWD, but I think what people are starting to realize is that subaru's are not the tackle anything kinda vehicle they're made out to be because toyota made a rav4 more capable, forcing the wilderness trims to start showing up just to keep subaru on the map. They are already a small brand, they have their work cut out for them if they wanna stay a brand at all.

    The WRX is charmingly ugly, like the A-10 Warthog. It's allowed to be ugly. It's supposed to be ugly, and it's still awesome.

    You made good points in reference to looks...personally the 22b trim is my favorite, but unicorns aside, it's never been a pretty car. I cant speak for anyone else, but I dislike the upcoming model because it just looks generic, not edgy or ugly like before. It reminds me of a civic sport model with new BRZ tailights...just not great I guess. I'm sure the sti trim will make it look more aggressive, but I'm not sure it'll be you said, first impressions...and this one is just kinda meh.

    I dont see many Subarus on the road any more; I used to see them all the time. Always some boy racer in a impreza, bug eye or 2004+. These days...I dont even know what their new models look like, and Vancouver has a very eclectic car scene covering all bases. Subaru is very under represented right now for sure

    I was holding out for a new STI but it looks like I won't bother. Ill put some cash into my GC8 to repair the paint fade, throw in a new seat and get the steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara and call it a day. Considering my car with its 200k+ kms still matches current WRX performance what's the point in the upgrade?

    WRXs have looked like utter shit with zero design consistency since the beginning. They have no visual legacy, they're all just random versions of toddler design. This one is slightly less garbage than most.

    My favorite WRX is the GC - for a reason. That's the one that brought Subaru's rallying world to life. Heck, Colin McRae was in one when he was on his winning streak. People dislike the current one because it looks to SUSsy. When I say that, I mean it looks more like a sport utility sedan than a sport compact car.
